The Georgetown Clean Tech Park, currently under construction, will be a 60-acre tax-free zone for clean tech companies. The park will be a destination that attracts companies, entrepreneurs and talent, all focused on advances in clean technology growth. It will also bring together people in key provincial priority areas including education, the economy and the environment, and will help create a new sector for growth on PEI.
The first building in the park will be the Clean Tech Innovation Centre, home to the Clean Tech Academy. Together, the Academy and the Innovation Centre will accommodate a range of education and enterprises in eco-centered research, development, and manufacturing.
